Different than any other restaurants I've ever been. Strict serving times changing from day to day since lamb is prepared 9 hours. You should go to their web site and look for which day and time is suitable for you. Your table is ready when you come with traditional bread, butter, local drink and water on the table. After that... More

We drove over 400 km round trip just to eat here. Actually I am sitting waiting for my fifth portion of lamb. Served only with potatoes and lamb fat dripping everywhere it is meat heaven. Huge woodfired oven. Shame it does fruit for pudding but even heaven has to have faults. Now where's my next plateful?
